Lancio del nuovo portale Designstoriesfromhelsinki.fi

A Settembre in occasione del seminario City Design Meet-up che si svolgerà durante l’Helsinki Design Week (3.-13.9.2015), verrà lanciato a livello internazionale un nuovo portale on line, Designstoriesfromhelsinki.fi, che presenterà alla design community mondiale dieci racconti che illustrano, attraverso una selezione di esempi, come il design può essere utilizzato per sviluppare i servizi pubblici e migliorare le città in cui viviamo.

“Design thinking has become a permanent part of the development of cities over the past ten years. These stories illustrate the use of design in the development of a wide variety of matters, ranging from library services to construction sites, from youth homelessness to public transport,” says Laura Aalto, Design Driven City Director of Communications.

The publication explains how city operations and services have become more user-oriented with the help of design thinking, and it presents inspiring examples. It offers many straightforward observations and advice based on projects and places in which Design Driven City has produced true innovations – and has done so well.

Designstoriesfromhelsinki.fi discusses Helsinki’s activities as part of the UNESCO City of Design network. UNESCO conferred City of Design status to Helsinki late last year. In its application for the status, Helsinki committed to utilizing design in developing a better, more open city.

Designstoriesfromhelsinki.fi is produced by International Design Foundation’s Design Driven City project and the City of Helsinki Economic Development division. Designstoriesfromhelsinki.fi is published in Finnish and English, and both language versions are released at the same time. The content is created by Kaskas Media, photographer Aleksi Poutanen, design agency Nimiö and digital agency Kelvin.
